Sofia Kenin 1.48, Ons Jabeur 3.0
Kenin leads their previous matches 3-1. The last time they met was in June on grass. Jabeur retired. Kenin also won in Hobart last season. She won on a hard court in straight sets.
Stronger overall results for Kenin in the last 12 months. Her hard court results are also better.
Jabeur has won 3 of her matches as underdog in this tournament. She has played well but Johana Konta, Caroline Garcia,Caroline Wozniacki and Qiang Wang all had pretty poor matches.
Kenin had 2 good wins in the last 2 rounds. She beat Cori Gauff in 3 sets in the fourth round. Gauff had knocked out defending champion Naomi Osaka in her previous match.
I favour Kenin to win but expect to see a higher price on her. Back Kenin around 1.85 to 1.95.
